Marin - now with wig

So, I just tried my hand at dying a wig. It took forever to get the golden auburn colour I wanted.

I used to just dye my natural hair for costumes, but I'm afraid that I may be ruing my hair so I recently tried dying it back to my natural shade and then I got it cut short-ish. I need to go have it professionally dyed...that box color is fading and my hair is turning light brown/ dark blonde now...

Anyway, it's my Marin dress and now I have a wig for the costume! I may have constructed the dress in High School, but as long as it fits me I'm going to wear it. So far I really haven't had to mae any alterations of repairs sense the day I finished it. I really wish I owned a sewing machine and surger like my High School sewing class had. I'd have to repair my other outfits less often.

The wig is sythetic and was originally blonde with pink streaks. I tried dying it with the sharpie dye method, then with actual hair dye...neither of which really worked. The wig wouldn't hold the colors. Finally, I found a way to dye it with acrylic paints. then I used some sharpies for highlights/ lowlights. I finally got the results I wanted, though.

Now, I just need to make Marin's harp....sigh.

You can still sing Marin's theme while playing your "imaginary" harp! I'm pretty sure those listening would appreciate it just as much :)
